Subject: string replace

a lot of times I need to replace more than one char into a string, so I
have to do something like

value = "test"
chars = "e"
for c in chars:
   value = value.replace(c, "")

A solution could be that "replace" accept a tuple/list of chars, like
that was add into the new 2.5 for startswith.

I don't know, but can be this feature included into a future python
